I'm 39, normal weight and I used to be quite active.
But for the past 2 years every time I do something to increase my heart rate, my stomach hurts. And it will hurt harder and harder if I don't stop. And it can be exercise or recently even just having an argument and talking.
But the pain will go away completely in 2 minutes if I stop, or just decrease my movement so the heart rate can go under that number.
Back when it started I needed to increase my heart rate over 150 for my stomach to hurt.
But if I slowed down my running and got my heart rate at 140, even if I kept running, the pain stopped in a few minutes.
It's the same now, but that number went lower and lower.
And it kept getting worse and now the moment heart rate is over 100, that means walking, my stomach hurts. And it can hurt quite bad if I keep walking and I don't stop.
I did tests like EKG and another test I think ultrasound, where they move a small device over my skin and they can see on a screen what's inside.
And both the gastro and cardio doctors said everything appears normal.
Except for the systolic murmur which I had since I was young and the cardio doctor said it's absolutely no concern.
?My blood pressure is normal.
For the gastroscopy the doctor said he saw no problems inside my stomach except for a slight redness.
To add more details, a year ago the gastro doctor gave me Domperidone which is a pill to make the food travel easier through the stomach. This helped a little immediately, so the pain instead of appearing at 120, appeared a 130, it was a mild improvement which helped for a few good months. But slowly it progressed and now it's worse.
Anti-acid pills have absolutely no effect.
For me it loos like some type of angina, but what kind of further tests can I do to convince the doctors ?
I've read on internet that there are multiple types of arterial problems and they can be localized in the heart and legs. But maybe they can be localized also in the stomach ?
